9:03 am
baltimore. a little sun peeked out in pikesville. 66 degrees. that northeast wind at 14 is going to keep us pretty cool and moist. we've had showers roll through northern baltimore, harford, cecil county this morning. they seem to be winding down but our forecasters show that some showers may try to pick up as we head through this afternoon. just plan for the chance of showers and temperatures getting up to about 74, below normal. we'll actually have a cooler day with more rain tomorrow. more coming up in a bit. we're live in pikesville. we'll be right back. back to you. the top stories -- we start with this exclusive video of a police-involved shooting that happened in southeast baltimore. two undercover cops with the monument street initiative were trying to make a drug arrest in the 2800 block of orleans when police say one of them was stabbed by a drug suspect. the officer's bulletproof vest protected him from getting hurt. police say the other officer shot the suspect who later died
9:04 am
at the hospital. both officers are now on routine administrative leave. we now know the identity of a burglar killed by a johns hopkins student who used a samurai sword. police say the suspect has been identified as 49-year-old donald rice and he had a lengthy criminal record. rice died at the scene. it could still be a couple of more days before police tell us if the student will be charged in this case. the student and roommates' accounts of the incident could help them make this decision. >> people do have a right to defend themselves. samurai swords are not illegal in baltimore city. it's like going to your garage with a baseball bat. >> people are allowed to use deadly force in defense of their home. if there's a felony being committed or about to be committed or if they themselves reasonably believe that they or a family member are at risk. >> our legal expert says that the fact that the burglar had no weapon, it shouldn't matter, if he really lunged at the
9:05 am
student prompting him to defend himself. police are still matching witness statements with evidence found at the scene to make sure there are no discrepancies. cuts to the state budget are affecting bwi marshall airport. the maryland aviation administration says that they are closing the communications center at the airport. what that means right now is eight staffers including those who deliver announcements in five languages are losing their jobs. officials say that the use of cell phones and automated system for the airport's 1-800 number deals mostly with problems. the cuts will save about $450,000 a year. the giant food store in bel air's tollgate mall shopping center will close for good next month. that is according to the "baltimore business journal." it will affect almost 100 workers but they will be given the chance to work at other stores in the area. officials say there are no plans to close other giants this year. the gross grossry store will close october 29th.
9:06 am
no word if anything will go in its place. ray lewis wants to provide fans entertainment off the field. he was in hunt valley yesterday for the groundbreaking for a brand new family entertainment and dining facility. it will be at the site of the old wal-mart in the hunt valley town center. we're told the new facility will offer upscale bowling, live radio broadcasts, private event rooms, restaurants, sports bar, even high-tech golf simulator. mvp entertainment is scheduled to open early 2010. to the latest on the city city hall corruption case. developer ronald lipscomb paid for a survey for delegate jill carter. who ran for mayor in 2007, according to court documents filed by attorneys for helen holton. carter denies knowledge of the poll saying she really doesn't believe in them. councilwoman helen holton is charged with accepting a poll from lipscomb. her attorneys say she's being unfairly singled out. maryland's highest court
9:07 am
gives the ok for a request to hear arguments from a lawsuit that baltimore police commissioner kevin clark was illegally fired. there will be a hearing heard that will be to throw out the suit. he was fired in 2004 by then mayor martin o'malley over a domestic dispute and his girlfriend. reportedly clark's lawyer says this means the decision the entire case is open for review again. 9:07. the president is going to be pushing his economic and health care plans. he spoke to auto workers at a gm plant outside of youngstown, ohio yesterday. he told them the economy is on its way back from the brink due to his policies. on thursday president obama will head right here, will speak at a health care reform rally at the university of maryland college park, starts tomorrow in the comcast center. we'll be there to cover the speech. a dinner is a great way to give back to those in need. >> how your meal will give you

9:11 am
how can you hurt an animal? we've been reporting on such crimes and because of that we now have the anti animal abuse task force. how upset are you when you see these stories? we had phoenix burned, the cat, come on. >> it's -- the crimes have been so shocking and so graphic that it's traumatic not just for people who care about animals. >> the ones we know about. >> exactly. there have been several high-profile cases that have come to light but animal abuse is covering everywhere. >> is it getting worse or been there all the time but we're starting to notice it more? >> we're really not certain. some people are saying there's an uptick but i think a lot has to do that we're more sensitive to it and we're hearing more about it and caring more about it. >> i know you've done the studies, little kids that hurt
9:12 am
animals tend to, you know, grow up to be people we don't want to hang around. >> this is why we want people to care. we never want to see an animal get hurt but studies are showing that juveniles who commit these types of crimes are about five times more likely to commit violent acts against people. as upsetting as this is, this is the biggest wakeup call for our community to try to stop crime. if you stop an pal cruelty in its tracks -- animal cruelty in its tracks you go a long way in stopping violence down the road. >> i think we're one of the few cities that have such a task force, that has to make you proud. >> this is innovative. there are other cities that have done this but one thing that is really good, mayor dixon is genuinely compassionate and at the press release that we had, that concern for crime victims, whether they are people or animals came out very clearly. but she very strongly
9:13 am
recognizes this connection between violence against animals and violence against people and so this is -- this certainly is about animals. it's about crime as well. >> what's this task force designed to do? what do you think it will do? >> she asked us to make recommendations on a whole host of things, legislation, prosecution. how we can help animal control. a lot of -- there are a lot of different components to this and we want the public to try to help us. that is why we're having this public meeting this evening. >> would animal abuse also involve people not being able to care for animals? just letting them roam free? >> that probably would be more neglect. that is a big problem. if you go to the city shelters you see so many animals that have been abandoned, not cared for. abuse is actually a bit worse. so there are two levels. if someone me glects an animal that is typically a misdemeanor. if someone abuses one like we've seen with phoenix or ge brieiel, that is a felony, a serious crime.
9:14 am
>> what do we do, if we know something is going on down the street and i'm not too happy about it? >> the absolutely most important thing that people can do is to report it. we need people to be eyes and ears to this problem and to call 311 if they have evidence or they know of animal abuse occurring. if they see a crime occurring or they see a dogfight that is a very dangerous situation. they need to call the police in that instance. >> very good, carolyn, thank you for getting the word out. congratulations on the task force. we're going to have a public hearing, this is very important, tonight, from 6:00 to 8:30 at poly on cold spring lane starting at 6:00. you'll be there and you'll get an earful ear i imagine. >> i'm sure. >> come back and give us update. if you didn't join us in the beginning of the show this here is cane. he's a greyhound brought in with, that's blair. she's here to tell us about greyhound pets of america.
9:15 am
thank you for coming in. we were talking about greyhounds, the fact that most of the time these dogs work from racetracks and then need homes. what kind of situation are they in when they are racing and after that? >> they start to race when they are really young and they live in cages at the track facilities. they are ready to be retired when they are anywhere from 2 to 5 years old. organizations like ours, greyhounds pets of america are ready to try to find them a good home. >> 5 years old is young but still i think it's a long time for a dog to probably not have a life that most dogs we know have had, don't have the comfort of a home >> they don't. >> a companion. what are they like when they go into homes? >> they are wonderful pets, quiet and clean. they are gentle and sweet. and a lot of people probably think that a greyhound needs a big fenced yard and lots of activity. to be happy but honestly they are happy curled up on their bed or on the sofa.
9:16 am
going for short walks with owners. just really wonderful indoor pets. >> i know you had a greyhound. i was petting cane. i see a lot of scars. you say it's common for a greyhound. >> yes, during their racing days they have argth with the other -- arguments with the other dogs i guess. there are scars than. but they are really none the worse for wear. they come off the track and are happy to have a loving home. so appreciative and grateful for everything we do for them. >> tell me what you have going. you have a big event coming up. >> we do. on sunday it's greyhound pets of america's 19th reunion. at oregon ridge park from 11:00 to 4:00. anyone interested in learning more about greyhounds or would like to be around them a little, ask questions, get information, we would love to have them come. >> you mentioned there would be a lot of fun. dancing greyhounds? >> the dancing greyhounds, it's a dance troupe of greyhounds trained to perform, we're
9:17 am
excited to have them for the first time this year. >> how big of a need is there now for putting greyhounds in homes? >> a tremendous need. there aren't enough homes for the greyhounds that are retired from the track. groups like ours work really hard to find loving responsible homes where they can live the rest of their lives. >> take a dog like cane who was racing in florida. if he doesn't find a home what happens to him? who owns him before that? and what do they do with the dog if they don't adopt it out? >> he's owned by a trainer. when greyhounds don't have places to go they are put to sleep. >> hmm. >> it's never a good solution. our job is to find them a great home. >> if you can't make the picnic over the weekend what is the best way to learn more about the organization? >> our toll free number is 1-800-600-8607. our web site address, i think there's a link on your web site. >> take one look at cane. actually, first take one look at this, the 19th annual
9:18 am
greyhound -- cane got me tongue-tied, picnic celebration, sunday, 11:00 to 4:00. there's the number if you have questions. the dogs are so gorgeous. and they are always so sweet. it would really, even if you're just thinking, maybe this is the right dog for me it's a good opportunity to meet them. thank you for coming in. jamie, can you believe this? >> come on, cane, beautiful face. way to go, cane. now we're able to tell the weather. school back in session. that means we're sending justin back to the 29th grade. abc2's weather, wood holm elementary school in sykesville. how are you? >> we have a great bunch of the students. you heard the bell. the coolest teacher is here. he's got this tablet. i want to show you what he can do. back up a little, tom. as we show you on the screen. we've got ourselves the planet moving around the sun. let's see if he can make the

mills, i was surprised when i drove here and saw this brand new school which is actually fi years old and actually run by one of the coolest principals i've ever met. this is merrilee clark. good morning. >> hi, justin. >> you've been here four years. >> we opened as a math, science, technology school. we've had great success so far, and great teachers like mr. broome teaching math and science and technology everyday. technology, what's cool, it's not just having it but implemented well. and teachers like mr. broome know what to do to motivate the children to learn. >> i consider myself a science teacher snob, by dad teaching it for 15 years. this is all interactive stuff? >> yes. boys and girls love it and know how to manipulate it themselves. they can use the tablet, too and do things so they can learn even more content. >> i already embarrassed mr. broome, he was rookie teacher of theior? >> yes, in his first year of

9:24 am
what opened up the flood gaits for this chilly wind. stronger storms from the south and east, slow mover trying to pump moisture away. we're in between. and stuck with the chance of showers, really no organized storm now but along this boundary mostly cloudy skies, a few peaks of sun. we'll get to about 74 degrees and it will be breezy and you'll notice, yeah, cooler. the chance of showers, drizzle, even fog developing overnight. we're going to drop back to 62 and extend through tomorrow, a cooler day, we go from 62 in the morning, only about 66 in the afternoon. we're expecting to have the chance of maybe some steadier rains building in, a little wave of low pressure and that easterly wind will combine, we get a break as we roll in through friday. extended forecast quickly shows us, we'll try to get back to 75 with clearing in the afternoon. saturday, a nice start to the weekend at least as we see it now, that next wave of energy from the storm comes our way. back in the upper 60s to lower 70s with more rain sunday and monday. everybody, you're back on tv!
